Just got back late last night from another out of town venture and I am tired. But I am thankful, blessed, and ready for the week. So here are some thoughts to get the week rolling.
There usually isn’t much of a debate about this, in my life, but this weekend affirmed it: Sandwiches are my favorite food group. I love sandwiches, especially ones I can creatively piece together on my own. I am always looking for new sandwich combinations does anybody have one for me. Here is one I have been eating lately.
Sourdough Bread, Fresh guacamole (homemade of course), provolone, thinly sliced turkey, I like to put the bread, meat and cheese in the toaster oven till it is just right then add the guacamole.
It is simple and delicious. I like my guacamole a little spicy which makes it go well with the turkey. Other variations of this are to exchange the provolone for pepper jack cheese or to go with chicken breast.
If you are looking for some good fun summer reading, I have been enjoying Daniel Silva’s collection this summer. Typical spy, espionage, terrorist plots, but with some nice European and Israeli flavor. I am also chewing through The New Conspirators by Tom Sine which is a great book about the future of the church in the 21st Century. I also had the book Deep Change by Robert Quinn highly recommended to me this weekend.
I love my new phone. Picked up a Samsung Blackjack and I am really enjoying it. I debated waiting and saving for the new Iphone which is far cooler and more stylish, but I am pleased with the blackjack. Now I can check my email at all times. That can only make life simpler and easier, right?!?!
I sing to my kids a lot. This isn’t because I am a great singer it is just because I love music. Right now my daughter keeps requesting that I sing Sugar Mountain by Neil Young. She likes Neil Young, and knows the lyrics to several of his songs. Here is what the song is supposed to sound like.
On a Biblical note I was visiting another church on Sunday while I was out of town and two things happened I haven’t seen in a while. First, people brought their Bibles to church. Second, when I read from a passage, they turned there and followed along. They actually have, use, and know their Bibles. It was cool. I am really trying to help promote and provide more Biblical literacy for the people I am blessed to preach to and to live life with and it was just a nice reminder that there are places where Biblical literacy happens. I needed that encouragement.
Anyways, have a great week and as Neil says, Keep on Rocking in the Free World.
